STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Meanwhile, let's take you back yesterday, a full slate of exhibition NFL games. So, were there protests? Yes, there were. There were people kneeling and there were people putting their fists up in the air.

...

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I'll paraphrase it, the union (NFL Players Association) and the league are talking because the league came out with a mandate. If you're going to take a knee and you're upset about the national anthem, stay in the locker room. The players are upset by that, they say, "we're not going to go along with that." So, both the union and league started talking. While they're talking, that moment right there is alienating. Alienating the people that matter most and, sadly, they're being ignored, and that's the fans. It's not your cause isn't just, we want to hear about it. Just, we can't hear it when the national anthem is playing. 

...

KILMEADE: Here we go across the league. How many NFL package are going to be cancelled now?
